Brian Willmont: Chaos & Wild Again

The Spring Equinox arrived this past Sunday in its most unconventional and undesirable way. Mother Nature played a practical joke in the form of a cold and windy day with some snow flurries that felt more like the start of winter. Until the weather start feeling like it should be, I am going to fake it till spring actually makes it via Brian Willmont’s colorful season appropriate exhibition, Chaos and Wild Again at Victori + Mo gallery.

Willmont incorporates airbrushing techniques reminiscent of abstract 1980s style street art. The meticulous production process begins with the original digital compositions being transfer on to the canvas using the stencil technique. A technique popularized by Blek Le Rat, one of the most influential street artists from our generation. This technique allows for the colors to seep in sharp and bold tones on to the canvas, almost making their appearance look as neon lights were filtering through the paintings. The process gives his paintings a look similar to 8bit graphics who have been altered by a computer glitch with a hallucinogen outcome.

Pop culture symbols like the rose and drops of water often affiliated with vulnerability and with a constant changing state, became the leading roles throughout the exhibition.

“Chaos and Wild Again advances Willmont’s inquiry into the ephemeral nature of our human condition, particularly by addressing the experience of what it means to live in a digital world.”

Today the weather is expected to soar to 70 degrees and the rest of the week is looking promising. Perfect reasons to get out, explore, and visit the cool kids at Victori + Mo 56 Bogart Street, Brooklyn, NY.
